Emergency Department Risk Management Program
The proactive Hospital Risk Management Program at US Acute Care Solutions (USACS) is designed to identify medico-legal risks before they become medico-legal cases. This program brings together nationally recognized experts in integrated acute care and medical malpractice to present essential risk management strategies.
Our 24/7 on-call system decreases risk and ensures our physicians are never alone in managing a potentially risky situation. Our FailSafe program provides our physicians with 24/7 phone access to an experienced, senior physician for discussion of high-risk cases or situations which may arise in your health system.
Our lawsuit management is truly one-of-a-kind. Even the best proactive hospital risk management programs and the most compliant medical risk management behaviors may not be able to prevent all lawsuits. Our Risk Management Program ensures physicians receive support, guidance and expert legal representation if they are the targets of a lawsuit. In addition, USACS is the only acute care provider that owns its own malpractice insurance company. Every full-time equity owner physician has an equal share in the company creating an intrinsic drive to provide state-of-the-art risk management.
